5) Mrs. Smith’s

A near-universal least favorite, this pie had a decent crust, but that’s where the positives stopped. It had a strangely gelatinous texture (most likely from the addition of thickeners like modified food starch and carob bean gum), and an odd flavor that reminded a couple of tasters of window cleaner. The familiar spices also weren’t nearly pronounced enough, leading one taster to note that "it tastes nothing like pumpkin pie."
